The Gateway Affirmation
I am more than my physical body. Because I am more than physical matter, I can perceive that which is greater than the physical world. Therefore, I deeply desire to Expand, to Experience; to Know, to Understand; to Control, to Use such greater energies and energy systems as may be beneficial and constructive to me and to those who follow me. Also, I deeply desire the help and cooperation, the assistance, the understanding of those individuals whose wisdom, development, and experience are equal to or greater than my own. I ask their guidance and protection from any influence or any source that might provide me with less than my stated desires.
(Note: This Affirmation has evolved over time. On some Gateway Experience tapes it may be slightly different from the way it is presented here. Both versions will help you make the most of your experiences. Remember, it is the intent rather than the words themselves that is important.) Comments From Robert A. Monroe Regarding The Gateway Experience Sometimes it’s hard to determine a beginning, the point where an idea becomes a reality. The Gateway Programs are not in this category. We remember well when they started. In 1973, at Whistlefield Research Laboratories, in Afton, Virginia, we were conducting research studies on the effects of the environment on human consciousness. The Esalen organization at Big Sur, California, famous as the birthplace of many new trends in psychology and philosophy, heard of our work and invited us to conduct a weekend workshop at their facility. As a result, we had many requests to repeat the process elsewhere. Our Executive Committee approved this new activity as a means of broadening our research model – and indeed it did. Originally called the M-5000 Program, sessions were held on weekends at various sites throughout the United States and Canada. Several thousand individuals from all walks of life participated in this constantly evolving series of training exercises. When we understood better the process taking place, we renamed it the Gateway Voyage Program – because what we were presenting was a Gateway, a means by which the individual could move into the exploration, knowledge, and understanding of oneself as well as the many reality systems where one has existence. The Gateway Experience is a special version of the Gateway Voyage Program. Designed for in-home application, it incorporates methods and techniques of the Gateway, adapted so that you can benefit from it wherever and whenever you so desire. Consisting of six exercises on tape cassettes, Discovery is the first album in this course. There are a total of six albums (thirty-six tapes) in the Gateway Experience. Sequentially, the remaining albums are: Threshold, Freedom, Adventure, Exploring, and Prospecting. Each tape and album contain a specific pattern of training. Accordingly, it is very important that you work with them in sequence. With in-home training, you have a definite advantage. You can repeat each exercise until you feel comfortable and proficient with its use. Do this. Then move to the next. The sound pattern you will hear on the tapes is a scientific process that helps you develop and absorb these Gateway states of consciousness. It is not hypnosis, although some of the techniques seem similar. The Gateway forms of consciousness show significantly different EEG brain-wave patterns from those of hypnosis subjects. At present, there is controversy as to what such patterns truly mean and how to categorize them. What can you expect from the Gateway Experience? As much or as little as you put into it. The exercises provide you with a set of tools – how you use them and what you do with them is your responsibility. Some discover themselves for the first time, and thus live more completely, more constructively. Others reach levels of awareness so profound that only one such experience is enough for a lifetime. Still others become seekers-after-truth and add an on-going adventure to their daily activities. There is one basic promise – that you seriously consider the Gateway Affirmation at the least a possibility: that you are more than your physical body, that you can and do exist in energy systems that are not limited to time-space, that you can and do communicate with intelligence beyond your physical consciousness – call it what you will.
The Benefits of Hemispheric Synchronization Perhaps even before recorded history, humans have sought to understand and enhance perception. By doing so, we are better able to understand and enhance our daily lives. The questions surrounding how we perceive, or how we go about making sense of our awareness, stimulate many avenues of inquiry. One of these avenues, science, has long known that our brains are divided into two halves, or hemispheres. In muscle functions, the nerve signals from these brain hemispheres act in an X crossover. The left brain controls the right side of the body, and the right brain controls the left side. But only in recent years has it been discovered that these two hemispheres may be quite different in the functions they perform. Research indicates that we use the left brain primarily to talk and read, do mathematics, to reason deductively, to remember detail, and to measure time, among other facets. It is the vehicle for logical, rational thought. Our right brain is the vehicle for ideas, spatial sense, intuition, music, emotion, and probably much more than we now realize. It apparently has a language all its own. Moreover, most of the time we think with our left brain. When we use our right brain, it is primarily to support the thought and action of the left. Otherwise, we often ignore it. Since its inception, the left-brain/right-brain theory has been under controversy. To stay apart from this unresolved conflict, our representation here is merely symbolic. Regardless of the physical location, we apparently have at least two distinct ways of perceiving and thinking. For the moment, the terms „left brain” and „right brain” serve only as identifying labels, or as a metaphor. We are primarily a right-handed civilization, dominated by our left brains. How did we get this way? No one is absolutely sure, but one of the better guesses is that the leftbrain dominance came about because of a basic need to survive in a physical world. Through thousands of years, our forebears added to left-brain dominance because that was the way to get things done. Our entire system-books, schools, colleges and universities, industry, political structures, churches – is fundamentally left-brained in learning, application. and operation. We have generally regarded right-brain thinking with amused tolerance, suspicion, disgust, irritation, distrust – and awe. However, recent studies show we use our right brain throughout our daily lives in many subtle ways. For example, the left brain remembers the name, but the right brain remembers the face. (How many times have you spotted a familiar face but couldn’t remember his or her name?) Studies of world leaders throughout history indicate they were thinkers who used far more than the analytical, intellectual portions of their minds. All great decisions by these leaders have been made with the left brain PLUS. Plus the right brain? Evidence supports it, based upon what we now know. How, then, do we go about using more of our brain power? There is a method and technique that offers much promise and potential. It can be utilized with relative ease, does not require years of intensive training, and is not limited to a narrow band of application. It is called HEMI-SYNC, which is short for hemispheric synchronization. Developed by The Monroe Institute, this process uses pulses of sound to create in both brain hemispheres electrical wave forms simultaneously equal in frequency and amplitude.

These exercises assist you to know and better understand your total self. your own adventures. or participate in the Institute’s programs. stress-tension reduction. The Hemi-Sync process already has been tested and applied in many ways: for better sleep. it has been one of the fundamental reasons for the success of the Gateway Programs. One of the Institute’s early goals was to develop and provide a training system in this technique. are in search of the out-of-body experience (OBE). if you hear a sound measuring 100 hertz (cycles per second) in one ear and another signal of 125 hertz in the other ear. These states facilitate a great deal more than the OBE. Monroe’s books and the extensive media coverage of our work in this area. Therefore. certain sound patterns can assist you in achieving desired states of consciousness. concepts. enhanced creativity. It is never an actual sound. following the X pattern mentioned earlier. The Institute goal is to provide techniques for exploring your full potential and for „travelling”. as more sophisticated methods of exploration were developed. then the whole brain – both hemispheres – is focused in a coherent state of awareness. Most important. The FFR demonstrates that when you hear a certain type of sound. or resonate with. The tapes also provide a structured environment in which you create your own experiences. They are designed so you may learn and experience profound areas of expanded awareness. Each individual approaches this internal work with different abilities. and dynamic processes. your brain tends to respond to. Each ear sends its dominant nerve signal to the opposite brain hemisphere. and sometimes courage. The sounds you hear during the Gateway Experience exercises are characteristic of this process. This is not surprising considering the wide dissemination of Mr. as you move by carefully controlled steps from deep relaxation to those thresholds of consciousness apparently related to deep meditation. It also can be learned and recreated from memory as desired. that sound. control of pain. These thresholds become Gateways into different forms of perception: states of expanded awareness. This third signal is the binaural beat. The Gateway Experience As are all Gateway Programs. Many who use the Gateway Experience. Hemi-Sync takes the process an important additional step.The Institute was granted a patent in 1975 based upon the use of such sound pulses to induce a frequency following response (FFR) in the human brain. accelerated learning. it became evident that participants were entering discrete (distinct and separate) nonordinary states of consciousness. problem solving. the signal your whole brain will „generate” will be 25 hertz. rather than to 5 . However. the state of awareness can be changed at will by changing the sound pattern. the Gateway Experience is dedicated to the exploration and development of human consciousness through a system of exercises using Hemi-Sync. If the 25-hertz signal (above) is one that produces a certain type of consciousness. which is the difference in frequencies between the two signals in each ear. Furthermore. even for playing a better game of golf. By sending separate sound pulses to each ear (using stereo headphones to isolate one ear from the other). Each enters this area from a different place and goes to a different place. volition. Each exercise requires active concentration. For example. Various electrical brain-wave patterns are indicators of specific states of consciousness (such as awake or asleep).
Gateway participants often report intuitive perceptions: a sudden awareness. or „thoughtball” as one person delightfully described it. 6 . We honor men and women of vision. These sensations might feel like motion: rising and falling. we close such beautiful channels that were open to us by discounting our impression as unreal rather than allowing them to be legitimate. buzzing. or impressions of voices.

Coordinating your eye movement with your breathing is one way to become aware of your ability to control autonomic (automatic) behavior. You will soon grow comfortable with this process and you may notice kinesthetic responses as your body becomes aligned with resonant energy.

Therefore. Here is an example of how the process of energy conversion can work: You may go to your box and the first fear you perceive is the fear of speaking up in groups. This process is not intended to be a quick-fix or one-shot panacea. or you may discover a memory of what it was like before you developed the encrustation of fear and emotion that limit your potential. bubbling it away. you might perceive how you felt as a small child who was naturally willing to share the wonder of a new discovery with other people. Once you bubble that fear away. for this exercise.whether or not fear is an emotion. close your box. pop your REBAL. the event hidden and covered by the fear and emotion. But if you deliberately choose to move beyond your limitations. „the memory. the feeling of icredible freedom and rapture that accompanies a return to our most natural conditions. It’s not always easy and may require numerous efforts. first use your Energy Conversion Box with careful consideration. Pull the fear out of the box and move it away from you like a bubble floating upward in water. once meaning „to stand outside of oneself. Ecstasy. consider the word „fear” to denote the primary emotional charge related to a particular self-imposed block or limit and the word „emotion” to denote associated emotional charges related to that limit. Entering these nonphysical states requires a nonphysical consciousness which can move „out” of one’s physical body. Out-of-body exploration in this exercise is based on the concept that sleep is a natural Gateway into other states of reality.” You may find that a specific event in your life comes up. free of fear and emotion. you might encounter the emotion of embarrassment. Most of us have many layers of encrustation that hold us back. state your affirmation. Discovery #5: Exploration Sleep Use this tape after you are completely comfortable with tapes 1 through 4.

You can also use this method in C-1 with the One-Breath Technique. „What is my problem?” and our biggest question. Choose only to be guided. A sense of thanksgiving seals the experience. You do not need to know the way to guidance. „What is the most important message I can receive and understand at this time?” Or be specific 16 .

This exercise demonstrates how the REBAL relates to you-not simply to your physical body. the experience are totally. and then floating a short distance away from your physical body. However. you can always return to C-1. we recommend that you begin developing OBEs by learning to create high energy states. go back to the Discovery instructions on page 25 and review the REBAL. Some people never know how they separate from or re-enter their physical bodies: they simply find themselves out or back. or simply fly over the nearest treetops. Using these techniques. „Liftoff” guides you through the process of getting your REBAL well formed. develop friendships with nonphysical entities. From this point. an OBE typically feels very natural and offers a sense of unbounded freedom. This process is like putting fire under a kettle: water will convert to steam and expand or rise. „Liftoff” offers you something very important – that perspective. Thus. As a refresher. through patience and relaxed effort. the action. Experiment until you find a technique that feels good and then practice it. or even as a nondescript mass of energy. Repeat it until the process is so familiar that you can perform it at will when you reach Focus 10. physically wide awake and alert. The next step is to practice various separation techniques. If you feel stiff. Like 24 . governed only by who you are and how you wish to grow.(possibly nonhuman) form. The possibilities are endless. and you will be in C-1. Then. if one has let go of physical habits to some extent. solely yours. as a sphere of light. At this point in your training. To do so. its use will become an automatic procedure. the goal would then be learning how to perform this natural process consciously. Others use specific techniques. gliding. but it does give you the perspective of such action and movement. Sleep on page 29). say in your mind or think the number one. we can go out-of-body during sleep (please „refer to Discovery #5: Exploration. one may experience a reality shock. When the energy builds suddenly. Perceiving the separation between these energies is a major step in learning more about your personal makeup. separation can occur with incredible speed and possibly with roaring or rushing sounds. You may wish to explore the solar system. or a fear of being separated from the physical self or body. Thinking habits also apply to fear. and is directed more toward experiencing nonphysical energy. As such. Freedom #1: Liftoff This exercise is designed to help you become completely calm and comfortable from a perspective that has little or nothing to do with your physical body. The REBAL is such a valuable tool that once you understand its possibilities. map the terrains of and between physical and nonphysical realities.
The cement rectangle with water in it was a sewage processing plant. rather than the you of your physical body. explore how you perceive. Once you have acquired the technique. Nave a friend select a specific location in their home or office where a target object can be placed. A woman got lost in a blizzard when we used an almost empty flour sack in which to place our target. exactly as he had seen it. A man felt silly to report finding a quarter moon in daylight when he tried to see in a paper bag. white paper bag. you will need to do the following: 1. an empty table top. Mind Reach.standing in an elevator. or an out-of-the-way counter. as he was walking back to the building. This exercise provides you with the means by which you can perform actual demonstrations utilizing the energy tools you now have available. to return safely and easily. It can be a window sill. and events. and scored a miss. in order to prepare for this experiment. a young man „saw” a very distinctive red car in front of the building. At a Gateway session in Richmond. To become familiar with this technique. Use this exercise until it is very familiar to you. they reported that one subject interpreted a cement rectangle filled with water as a swimming pool. you may first want to listen to the tape prior to actually performing this experiment. or merge with. you rise without effort by feeling as though you were relaxing or „settling down. Once you are secure with this knowledge. places. it is quite easy to move away farther than the exercise provides. place. objects. In it. your awareness. A man reported being stuck in a dark. The target was a lemon wedge in a teacup. underground cave. or event you wish to perceive. or having your awareness reach out to that person or place. You will also find that it provides the assurance of your ability. dank. The target was an old shoe. how your perceptions work. Virginia. the red car was there. Focus 10 is not subject to the C-1 concepts of time and space. This shows the ease of Remote Viewing. Remote Viewing has much to teach us about our assumptions. Are you more apt to sense geometric shapes. As you see. or textures? What makes you say specific words about the things you perceive? What are the core feelings? Does an object’s function affect your ability to resonate with it (for example. Practice with „Liftoff” – and have fun! Freedom #2: Remote Viewing Remote Viewing One method of extending your consciousness in order to perceive distant people. Then. as well as our perceptions. he was crushed not to find the red car. Therefore. Obtain a clean. Gateway stories concerning Remote Viewing are legion. and also establishes the need for being time conscious. The perception of space is different in Focus 10 such that the awareness of a location or person can flow into. The bag should be large enough to hold small 25 . colors. reference to time and space while Remote Viewing is necessary only in order to determine the appropriate time and place in which to immerse your awareness. is to place your Energy Bar Tool at the center of your consciousness and let it stretch or flow to the person. can you perceive apples but not cigarettes)? Scientists Harold Puthoff and Russell Targ define the hazards of interpreting versus describing in their book. you can develop your own ways of using it. Experiment. After lunch. As you envelop the object with your awareness. thereby thinking he missed the exercise. This is almost like calling that person or place to you. Ensure the object stands alone as a target. Quickly going outside after the tape.” Center yourself in the you that is nonphysical energy.
Again. your friend can be several thousand miles away since distance makes no difference in Remote Viewing. 3. utilizing what is convenient for you. you might want to allow more time to make notes of your experiences following the exercise and prior to contact with your friend. only a greater understanding of our awareness. Arrange with your friend to select a small object. or target. This exercise uses three-dimensional space for such reference points. and with the idea of the target already having been placed inside the white bag by your friend. Six 26 . As you work with „Remote Viewing. If you cannot reach the person immediately by phone. Begin this exercise with the knowledge that you will use your EBT. 9. place. However.2. Write down the information you will give to your friend. to place in the bag. 7. You may find yourself more proficient in one part of the exercise than another. Many of these you will develop on your own. Finally. At the conclusion of „Remote Viewing. And remember. As you progress. you will begin to perceive extensions that are naturally developed by the „Vectors” system. This person should also be separated by some distance from you. Encoding Memory Freedom #3: Vectors „Vectors” provides reference points to enable you to repeat any explorations with or without using these exercises. and understand. This can be a specific object or a photograph of a person.” try to integrate your newfound strengths into your daily life. Perception utilizing nonphysical energy is not limited to ordinary concepts of time and space. Remember the Energy Bar Tool (EBT) that you have developed. Pay particular attention to why you arrived at any conclusions about the target. by all means repeat the process and concentrate on the section that is most effective and build from there. If so. The exercise guides you in conceptualizing the face of a clock. it is a good way to learn this process of establishing direction – by relating it to the location of your physical body. get in touch with your friend and determine if your results are accurate. The experiment should be set for a specific time agreed upon by you and your friend. Review your inaccurate æonclusions and try to understand why they may have be in error. 6. This is a technique that will enable you to perform Remote Viewing. Explore why you feel the way you do a bout those perceptions. Review your notes. It helps you go and return with a sense of direction. or thing. As with most learning. Patterns will emerge over time. 4. there is no failure in psychic functioning. 8. Try to look at. request that your friend forward you a written report of the target for verification. In fact. which may be a little misleading when working with nonphysical energy. Have your friend describe the location of the white bag.” write down the perceptions that you have concerning the target. Be sure to make special note of your accurate conclusions. 5. Arrange with a friend to have a small table or cleared area set up at a distance (at least not in the same room) from where you will be listening to the exercise. Twelve o’clock is always just above the top of your head. Always log your results. Until you are proficient. this means not in the same room. The entire pattern may not work well for you the first time. prompt feedback accelerates the development of Remote Viewing skills. why these patterns are a part of your life. Your friend should be someone with whom you can verify the experiment. and should have a specific or set duration – usually the length of the exercise. It is important that the object selected remain unknown to you. And ensure that you can verify by phone or otherwise the results of your experiment with this person.
it can become a very automatic pattern in any exploration. However. Repeat 27 . The number nine. you are guided forward and outward to the new three o’clock position just in front of your feet. then around to nine o’clock just beyond your right hip. stimulating. then outward and upward to the new nine position which is just beyond and away from the back of your waist and hips. The number twelve still remains above your head. you can have many points of exploration in this three-dimensional pattern. is directly behind you. 1. part of this exercise. as you become proficient. In each of these steps. In the first step of the exercise. you learn to extend or move your perception around the face of the clock. then to below your feet at six o’clock. are natural. Where and who was I before I entered this physical being? 3. Detect any interesting or unusual features while focusing in a particular direction. The second part of the exercise rotates the face of the clock ninety degrees. From there the movement is upward and inward to the twelve position at the top of your head. „Vectors” may require several repetitions before you become proficient with the method. and nine o’clock is just beyond your right hip. therefore. Notice the feelings associated with perceiving beyond your physical body. you can provide your own questions of a more direct and specific nature. Freedom #4: Five Questions This exercise will be the start of a process that you will utilize often on your own. of course. such as a three o’clock position halfway between the three to the side and the three to the front. It is important that you remember and log in your notes a vector that you find easy. Beyond this. Certainly. Who am I? 2. or from an external source. Eventually.o’clock is always just below the bottoms of your feet. just beyond your hips and waist. a sense of feeling or knowing. are only the beginning. What action can I now take to serve this purpose best? 5. During the first section. or even as a source of information. or other methods of perception you have been working with. What is my purpose for this existence in physical matter reality? 4. number three on the face is directly out in front of your hips and abdomen. three o’clock is just outside your left hip. They are given to you during the exercise. note any significant changes in your personal awareness and remember this change in relation to the position on the clock. for the third . Here are the five questions that you will ask in Focus 12. whether they are from your total self. Keep in mind that these kinds of responses. comfortable. What is the most important message that I can receive and understand at this point in my existence? The answers to these questions will most likely not be perceived as a spoken or written word. As these maneuvers are performed. you move around the face of thc clock and then return to the original position. It poses five questions for which you seek answers. They will probably be in the form of a series of pictures. Starting at twelve o’clock above your head. the more you utilize it. but it is helpful to review them in advance. you will learn to establish new vectors. move out and around to your left side at three o’clock. You begin at twelve above your head. Thus. It is then up to you to translate this nonverbal communication into time/space words and visual representations. the more effective it will become. Also. These.
This exercise guides you through five different methods o disassociation from your physical body. Others may require two or three sessions. If you fail to do this. Effectively performing this exercise will guide you to a deeper understanding of your total self. and joyous. What you will learn is that by simply extending your hands outward. Notice if you feel better. is simply practice. it is important to release the pressure that you have been putting upon such rotation. it is your option to select the method most comfortable for you. you will learn to make more distinctions between your physical and nonphysical energies. Each has been used successfully many times by. participants through the years. if you feel more energized. or if you did not obtain an answer in the first run-through. Nourishment will come from the very energy that you have been using and exploring during these exercises. Some people will retain and utilize it after only one session. Reorientation with the physical is quite simple: you rotate until your second body is in alignment with the physical again. and store energy. As you learn these methods.„Five Questions” if you need to understand a particular answer better. At that point you might perceive something akin to a little click. rather than actual application. You will obtain energy in a way other than the ordinary method of eating. Thus the exercise. palms up. In order to evaluate your progress proper conduct tests with the method shortly after each time you take the exercise. itself. you will perceive. it is possible to „peel” out of your physical body. slowly and easily rotate and roll this energy. This ability will then have become a part of you. Do so until what seems to be „surface tension” releases and you rotate freely as if there were an axis running directly through the length of your body. and you are then reintegrated. and can be used frequently as the desire arises. Many of the previous exercises have been aimed at making this particular exercise more understandable. an encoding of the process. Freedom #5: Energy Food This exercise trains you in a method to restore depleted energy. Encoding Energy food Freedom #6: First-Stage Separation „First-Stage Separation” enables you to take a major step in having conscious control of the total energy system that is you. Once you begin to achieve results. It is as simple as that. Much like a log floating in water. The application of this new tool is similar to many of the others in the Gateway Experience. The method you will learn is designed to be applied in C-1 after you return from this exercise. you might have only a partial rotation. Once you have stabilized this „out of phase” condition between your physical and nonphysical energies. If you release the pressure too early. absorb. The moment you feel such release. 28 . In your own way. thereby localizing your awareness in either your physical or second body. As with other tools. you may wish to combine one or more of these methods. perhaps only 90 to 180 degrees. comfortable. moving outward and turning over as you do so. you will be guided through the following processes: 1. or for clarification. This will better enable you to separate your awareness of these energies. Focus on the nonphysical energy within your physical body. you might continue spinning. That is. you no longer need to use the tape.
you move your second body slowly out of your physical body – head first. You begin to contemplate how pleasant it is to float upward. then shoulders. all you need do is think of some part of your physical body. The most important factor is patience. whenever you want to reintegrate completely and immediately with your physical body. use these techniques to develop patience and relaxed effort. The knowledge that you have this „quick return” procedure will only increase your sense of freedom. it often reforms quite naturally into a replica of your physical body. your only connection is where your energy feet are still in proximity to your physical feet. new places. You always have such control. As a result. you are free to behave as you desire. You may even feel yourself moving down through whatever you are lying on.1s with all exercises. like a cloud. to help you reduce the chance of this possibility. The third technique involves „backing away from the physical. This natural reaction is especially true for one’s first OBE. you’ll be able to experience the occasion fully. Remember. Once you have removed your second body from your physical self. . Then. Stimulating your physical awareness immediately initiates the return process. Journeys Out of the Body. once this is achieved. and start to move that part of your body. it is possible to remove or control the emotion gradually so that other parts of your total self can direct your experiences for the best possible outcome. Then. 5. doing chores. then your legs. then chest. It is important that you have 29 . turning away and moving to a more distant position from your physical body can become a daily practice. you may return to your physical body using the „Return to C1” encoding. WAVE IV: ADVENTURE In this series of exercises you are provided a dynamic expression of consciousness beyond Freedom – that of a personally controlled and directed Adventure. please refer to Robert Monroe’s book. new friends. 4. a sense of excitement shifts one’s attention back to the physical body.2. All of these methods and techniques require practice. Continued stimulation (such as walking. Once you have achieved this. The title implies new experiences. Practice will assist you in becoming more aware of processes to go out-of-body. the effects of working with these various energy tools are cumulative. such as the fingers on your right or left hand.” That is. and new excitement. To become a superb concert pianist requires many hours of practice. when you do have an OBE. The learning and application of one enhances and improves the use of another. until you are standing or are rigidly at 90 degrees from your physical body. Always bear in mind that you have an immediate means to return fully to your physical body. if you are still connected with your physical body. then waist and abdomen. Using your feet as a pivotal point. Therefore. To become proficient in the Gateway Experience requires much the same commitment. Again. The fifth method involves attaching an emotional value to the concept of floating and/or soaring. The fourth method involves moving out of the top of your head as if you are a thin spray of gas or fog.) Often when one becomes aware of a separation of the second body. one tends to re-enter the physical body immediately. In addition to the methods already mentioned. simply reverse your intent and tilt backward into your body. Or. 3. desire itself is sufficient to enable a complete separation of your second body from your physical body. At this point. The second method is one where you conceive of your second body as a rigid pole. new ideas. From that point. (For descriptions and elaboration of these and other techniques. you slowly back out and away from your physical body. or taking a cold shower) ensures a complete reintegration. and your second body responds to this emotional wish.
begin to learn and use NVC. or realities. It is better to decide on your purpose before you begin so as not to fail into a sleep or dream state during the exercise.. This exercise is your primary lesson in NVC. Rarely are the messages simply verbal. Now you 30 . Please see Threshold #3: One-Month Patterning on page 40 to review all recommendations for patterning. These and other unique forms of perception you develop will comprise your NVC vocabulary. then to Focus 12. It is a background against which you can move into planned. plan carefully the pattern you wish to establish. you developed tools and methods of perception. NVC appears to be a primary method of conscious interaction in and among energy systems. Such communication does take place continually. it will enable you to roam free and far without concern of drifting and forgetting your purpose. This is a noninvasive sound that will gently remind you of where and who you are. Adventure #2: Five Messages The Five Messages are arranged in order of importance.will simply be working with a different time period. As a result. or physical responses without words. Dreams are principally NVC. living action. where intelligence has a specific level of awareness. To fully enjoy your adventures. The process is identical. NVC is not to be confused with body language. then ask for the fourth. In previous exercises. You . Often information appears in nonverbal form utilizing the means of perception that you have been cultivating throughout the Gateway Experience. After you arrive at Focus 12. you will be introduced to the beacon guidepost. second. Adventure #4: NVC NVC is short for Non-Verbal Commmication. You will perform the preparatory process. and in mind-to-mind communication. systematic explorations in whatever direction you choose. and finally the first most important message for you at this time. You have also encountered it many times in your Gateway Experience exercises – in vibrations. emotion. Before working with this exercise. It is important not to try to analyze the messages as you receive them. but it is not NVC. Any use of these exercises without such prior experience is not recommended. Please keep in mind that the process of NVC is different from the process of C-1 communication. It occurs in the mind. Adventure #3: Free Flow 12 This is an exercise that you will utilize again and again. but to interpret them after the exercise. Both forms of communication require perception of some kind of data. light. You will first ask for the fifth most important message. Allow yourself to establish new meanings for familiar perceptions.completed all previous Gateway Experience Waves of Change exercises. move to Focus 10. either consciously or otherwise. Adventure #1: One-Year Patterning This is an opportunity to design exactly how and what you desire to be one year into the future. and then translation of that data to establish meaning. third. NVC is total expression.
The more advanced you become in NVC the broader your perception will be in all states of being. you may explore a more powerful and effective Focus 10 experience. and what you want to experience. Focus 12 might work best for you for patterning.” Furthermore. With these exercises you will learn to achieve goals and create experiences without instructions from the tape. You no longer need your verbal „training wheels. In turn. after that you will deliberately establish the Focus level that is most comfortable for you for any particular exercise. You will continue to recognize translation and conceptualization techniques. Work with it until you obtain results. you may find that Focus 10 works best for you for Remote Viewing. The Metamusic guides you through these exercises as you use the methods for reaching Focus 10 and Focus 12 that you have already learned. In the first two Exploring exercises. Then practice without the tape. or asking for guidance. WAVE V: EXPLORING When you listen to these exercises.will develop a form of total communication. and then on to states of expanded awareness and self-exploration. you will use Focus 10 and Focus 12 Hemi-Sync signals to help you arrive at those levels. It can also serve as an agreed-upon meeting place with friends. Adventure #5: NVC II This is additional instruction in NVC. Changes in the frequencies of the Hemi-Sync signals automatically guide you in creating different states of consciousness. problem solving. With this help. Exploring #1: Mission 10 This Focus 10 exercise is similar to „Free Flow 12” in that you should have a specific purpose in mind before beginning. Here. The difference is that there are no verbal instructions that may detract from your experience. and associate with other energy or energy systems. or practicing out-of-body techniques. you gather information. meet. For example. the direction is totally yours. There are no verbal instructions – the process is controlled solely by your mental direction. you have the expertise to regulate which Focus level you experience. With no verbal reminders of C-1. This Metamusic has been specifically composed to help you further develop Non-Verbal Communication (NVC). by this time in your Gateway Experience training. using your Energy Bar Tool. Any use of these exercises without such prior experience is not recommended. through NVC. or simply observe events and activities occurring there. You will direct yourself – where you want to go. you will sense your progression through the now-familiar preparatory process (Resonant Tuning sounds remain on each tape). But the music and Hemi-Sync sounds you hear are actually the Focus 10 and Focus 12 processes in a new form. Begin with the preparatory 31 . Adventure #6: Compoint Compoint is our abbreviation for Communications Point – a state of consciousness that you can establish and return to whenever you desire. It is important that you have completed all previous Gateway Experience Waves of Change exercises. your first impression may be that of simply listening to musical sounds. Here.
then come back to C-1 when it is time to return. asking questions. feelings. After completing the preparatory process. Carry out your stated purpose using tools you’ve learned in previous Gateway Experience exercises. so you may want to review Threshold #3: One-Month Patterning on page 40. Record your experiences. but in active mental pictures and in feelings. and move on to Focus 10. problem solving.) When you sense a change in the sound patterns. return to C-1 using the method(s) most comfortable for you. As usual. The sound patterns on this thirty-minute exercise are intended to evoke memories.process. Over time you will notice threads of continuity connecting your experiences. Express your goal not in words. This exercise will not bring you back to wakefulness. proceed to Focus 10 and then to Focus 12. the change in Hemi-Sync frequencies will automatically signal when it is time to move through each phase. or remember your dreams more accurately. and events. Then just relax and let it happen – there is no need for a specific purpose. Complete the preparatory process and move on to Focus 10 or to Focus 12. Your perceptions during this exercise may be different each time or they may build upon one another.” but the underlying audio signals will assist you into Focus 12. Exploring #4: Mission Night Listen to this thirty-minute exercise as you go to sleep at night. perform the preparatory process and choose your desired Focus level. Use it in the morning before you begin your activities. Exploring #2: Mission 12 This is a Free Flow 12 exercise-NVC style. just listen and allow the sounds to lead you along new paths. Pattern to direct your sleep experience.” this exercise can help open doors to unexplored places within you. solve a problem. but lead you into restful sleep. Exploring #5: Horizons Here is an opportunity to look inward and explore. After you have completed the preparatory process. to name a few). or 32 . The possibilities are unlimited. This is a patterning process. or you may determine that each is unique. This exercise can help set the tone for a successful day. receive a message. whichever is most comfortable for you. Accomplish whatever purpose you have selected (patterning. and to allow you to experience them in new ways. Exploring #3: Mission Day This fifteen-minute exercise is designed to help you make the most of your day. Actually see and feel the accomplishment of the day’s goal. or exploring a new idea or locale. (See Free Flow Methods of Exploration on page 33. from which you will awake refreshed. On the surface. After the preparatory process. „Mission 12” may sound the same as „Mission 10. Exploring #6: Pathways Like „Horizons. Have your purpose firmly in mind before you begin the tape. Again. You may want to have an out-of-body experience. go to Focus 10 or to Focus 12 (whichever is best for you) and express that which you want to achieve during the day.
• Trust in and build your NVC as you travel beyond the familiar time/space/physical matter reality. • Allow a breeze to move gently around you. To help you generate your own ideas for exploring. you can experience „the find” and capitalize on your unique and inborn treasures. to fly. return to C-1 by the method(s) you choose. and notice if this awareness affects what you have thus far experienced. The hunt can he almost as much fun as the discovery. whenever you want.” The Prospecting tapes provide the tools to dig for that diamond of thought. Travel to its core. and future. Sense the energy that gives you freedom – freedom to move. What changes do you notice? When the Hemi-Sync signals change at the end of this thirty-minute exercise. “Who or what was I before this life?” and then. “Where do I feel more at home?” Explore connections between past. • Perceive and communicate with the unique consciousness of all life forms. to float. what do you experience? WAVE VI: PROSPECTING Everyone has their own mine in which to dig for elusive treasures. here are a few suggestions: • Travel in and through time by asking. vitality. • Imagine yourself going deep within the earth. But don’t take our word for it – stake your own claims and find the rich veins waiting for you as you go prospecting.down old ones you may have long ago forgotten. How do you perceive the energy of a cloud? Can you communicate with a flower? What NVC does a dog use? • Perceive yourself in ocean surf and feel the energies of movement. What do nonphysical systems of energy feel like? What is the landscape? Are there inhabitants? • Imagine yourself reaching out and touching a tree. and life forces swirling a round you. and flowing deeply within you. present. “Who or what will I be during my next life experience?” Ask. 33 . Just for fun. The Metamusic is designed to take you one step further with NVC. What do you experience? Imagine yourself going deep within yourself. golden recognition. a „mine of the mind. and then feel the flowing of energies from above and below gathering within you. to be light. or artifact of knowledge which is important to your personal growth. Energy Walks Your growing knowledge and understanding of NVC is preparing you for the infinite possibilities of personal exploration and development. Feel it rooted in both the earth and sky. shift between Focus levels randomly. Any use of these exercises 4vithout such prior experience is not recommended. It is important that you have completed all previous Gateway Experience Waves of Change exercises. emerald feeling. Then the Hemi-Sync frequencies will gently guide you in creating different states of consciousness. Again. there are no verbal instructions. Prospecting will provide you with further experiences in Non-Verbal Communication (NVC). As with Exploring. “Does the future influence the past?” “Does the past influence the future?” Then perceive yourself growing in a way you want to grow. As in the old gold rush days. Resonant Tuning sounds are still included to help you complete the preparatory process.
Various studies indicate there is reason to believe that the body’s polarity routinely shifts from positive to negative and back again in cycles. We have observed that such a shift indicates a substantial change from C-1 awareness to nonphysical awareness. At the Null Point. Prospecting #5: Near Reaches Stake your personal claim in the physical universe. After completing the preparatory process. As a result. the Hemi-Sync signals will bring you back to your starting point. you’ll be better able to maintain or restore optimum physical balance and well-being. Our laboratory. Our research suggests that a deliberate shift in polarity indicates that one is experiencing a change in consciousness. 34 . go to Focus 10 or Focus 12 (whichever seems right for you). after completing the preparatory process. To reach this state of pure potential. Prospecting #3: Null Point This exercise can lead you to a rich and lasting gold vein in the mine of your mind. This tape is designed to create at the mental level the changes that you desire. This vein was unearthed in our laboratory while working with test subjects. and go to the Focus level that is most comfortable to you. Go from the preparatory process to Focus 10. then to Focus 12. begin a thorough examination of your physical body and its rhythms using the appropriate tools (such as your Living Body Map and Energy Bar Tool). Pay attention to subtle changes in your awareness. Therefore. instruments suggest that the Null Point is where the body’s electric polarity shifts into a neutral phase. Allow the frequencies to assist your shift in polarity. Then the Hemi-Sync signals can guide you beyond Focus 12 to the Null Point. You’re hunting the gems of metamorphosis. of change. The Hemi-Sync sounds will assist you in returning. Perform the preparatory process. Complete the preparatory process and go on to Focus 12. Then. The more you use this exercise the more familiar you’ll become with your physical being. mentally set your goals before you begin the tape. Prospecting #4: Plus Polarity Strike it rich! The purpose of this exercise is to lead you through the Null Point to the opposite polarity from where’ you started. go to Focus 10. then to Focus 12. Passing through the Null Point in this exercise can lead. you to discover untold treasures in and of time and space.Prospecting #1: Metamorphosite The prospecting is good at this site. Prospecting #2: Bio-Body With this exercise. Notice if you recognize more aspects of nonphysical energy. you will explore the treasure trove that is your physical body. Use patterning to bring about the changes you have set for yourself. As with all the tapes in this home-study course. Our subjects have found that the Null Point provides a useful „window” for heading in any direction of mind activity. you may purposefully decide exactly what to explore.
Energy Food (Threshold #4. Think of pure. bringing about the desired effect. close your physical eyes. balance. Freedom #2) To remember any part of your life experience. that reinforces the mental trigger. inhale deeply. count from ten to twelve. and store fresh new energy. and you will be in Focus 10. The more you use these encodings in C-1. speed. such as a breath or hand movement. From the preparatory process. and then the strong color energy of red. Awake and Alert (Discovery #2) To become physically wide awake and alert. extend your physical hands outward palms up. close your eyes and count slowly from one to ten. Dig deep. hold your breath. pass through the Null Point and begin your hunt. ENCODING INSTRUCTIONS To encode is to establish a specific signal. go to Focus 12 (see „Focus 12” encoding) and think of the pattern you desire. „Heal. or trigger.
